Singer Khalid says he plans to perform a concert to benefit those affected by Saturday's mass shooting in El Paso. https://t.co/tlJZMbo000— CNN (@CNN) August 5, 2019
Kahlid said his mind and heart have been heavy since hearing about the mass shooting in his hometown and he wants to help the city heal.
"Hearing/seeing an act of terrorism happen so close to home, my family and my friends has been unbelievable and shocking," Khalid tweeted on Monday, two days after a gunman killed at least 21 people and injured dozens more at an El Paso Walmart.
The benefit concert will happen later this month.
Over the past few days, my mind and heart have been heavy. Hearing/seeing an act of terrorism happen so close to home, my family, and my friends has been unbelievable and shocking. Singing “915” and “city of El Paso” on tour every night feels indescribable— Khalid (@thegreatkhalid) August 5, 2019
